If I could get the same performance and sound out of a hybrid as I get out of my Ram now, then yeah, but the price would also have to not be prohibitive. The hybrid Silverados are like a $50K truck, and I can't afford that, especially since it lacks in performance too.

So for me, I am up in the air. All for gas now, but it could change.

Not a chance. It would be a HUGE waste of money! And no they are not better for the environment.

If you wanna be more green and get better mpg, diesel is the way to go.

Maybe if they are able to make a hybrid that compares to my Ram I would buy one but I am thinking that is a long way away

Too many hills where I live, and I like towing my camper. It would be a waste, and not enough performance.

A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle that uses two or more distinct power sources to move the vehicle.[1] The term most commonly refers to hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), which combine an internal combustion engine and one or more electric motors. However other mechanisms to capture and utilize energy are included.

Now what are the options regarding a hybrid vehicle? Is it strictly electric/gasoline...

Or something like Diesel/JP5?
